Wildfires rage in Brazil's Amazon

A fire is seen on a tract of Amazon jungle at Tenharim Marmelos Indigenous Land, Amazonas state, Brazil, September 15, 2019. Brazil's conservation efforts have come under scrutiny this year amid the worst fires in the Amazon rainforest since 2010. Far-right President Jair Bolsonaro has called for rolling back conservation rules to allow more development of the region's natural resources. (This gallery has been updated to correct to say fires highest since 2010 and removes reference to record.

Smoke billows during a fire in an area of the Amazon rainforest near Porto Velho, Rondonia State, Brazil, September 17, 2019. Deforestation is often followed by burning to clear land for ranching or farming, so the destruction in August could signal more fires to come in the Amazon, according Ana Paula Aguiar, an INPE land use researcher now on leave at Stockholm University.
